Back at the beginning of this year, there was information that Ramy Mamdouh Elssbiay was dealing with some problems with his shoulder and, presumably, he would not participate in competitions, but all this was rejected by the athlete himself. As a result of the competition season, he did not participate in any of the poses this year and his coach Neil Yoda Hill claimed that the Egyptian should take an annual break. Thus, many assumed that he would not be able to take part in the Mr. Olympia 2019 tournament until recently Big Rami made an Instagram post in which he implies that he will be able to enter the Las Vegas stage.
Let me know what you think of my current form .. Am I back?!?! I will see you all in Vegas in 5 weeks … I’m so used to participating in @mrolympiallc for the last 6 years … I corrected a shoulder injury, I train and follow a diet, as if I was invited too
Guys, we're talking about the biggest show on the planet, so whether I do it or not, I'll see you all in Las Vegas (September 12-15) to take pictures and chat with everyone there.
Mamdu is in great shape and looks like he is ready to go out now, although there are still 5 weeks ahead. But he couldn’t even speak of a special invitation to the show, as just the other day the IFBB Professional League federation represented by Jim Manion issued the so-called Mr. Olympia Special Invitation for the performance of another athlete who did not participate in the qualification – Cedric McMillan. A special press release was released about this, where the reasons were listed: this is a real military service, which did not give an opportunity to prepare for the summer competitions, and past victories at festivals and tournaments, and merit in the work of Cedric with the younger generation.
Two invitations to Olympia outside qualifying performances? This is highly unlikely, according to representatives of the organizers of the AMI show. Thus, Big Rami will only be on display during the Olympia Weekend 2019.
